Communication Program–Planned for Maymester
[This program was ultimately postponed because the faculty leaders become unavailable. The department hopes to re-convene such a program in the future. It’s posted here as an example of scheduling professional development, not during the regular semester or just before the semester begins, but during Maymester. If participants are not teaching in Maymester, this is a window of time in which longer training sessions could more easily be scheduled and a program could provide professional development opportunities that might otherwise take an entire semester to complete.]
- Program focused on writing instruction and incorporating principles of Universal Design
- A series of intensive workshops occurs during Maymester 2015. Each session is led by a roster faculty member and is focused on a different aspect of teaching writing and/or incorporating Universal Design in the Comm major.
